Spoiler Mod?

Has anyone found a solution to jack the spoiler up about another two to three inches from where its currently at? I don't know if this is possible, or if it would even look good, but have seen some other cars with a higher spoiler, and thought it looked pretty darn tasty. (Ordering the SAP spoiler)

To answer the question though, pretty much your gonna have to change spoilers, the sap spoiler looks decent to some but beyond that start searching the web! BTW, I sell the spoilers, pm me!

What I'd do is find a CNC shop and have them produce a set of mounting plates out of something like 6/6 nylon. There would be a couple of iissues with this approach:

1. Cost

2. Getting someone to do a CAD of what you want with all the right measurements

Another potential set of issues surround whether you can get bolts long enough to house the extension (because I've never had the spoiler off and don't know what the assembly looks like) and if the wiring for the spoiler CHMSL has an extra couple of inches in it.

That said, if you're going to do this -- this is the right way to do it. The nylon extension would look factory. I dont think it'd look bad at all.

At the risk of sounding like a 'ricer', what about a generic spoiler from someone like Wings West? They have a wide variety of spoilers to choose from, not only the huge ones people like to make fun of. With some searching I"m sure you could find one that looks close to factory and has the added height you're looking for.

Allright everyone don't burn me on this! From past (ricer) experience Wings West is a very high quality piece, they have a very large selection and more than likely they can hook you up. Okay, with that said I'm going back to domestics now.....
